SpaceX successfully launches 'hammy' satellite

SpaceX Falcon 9 launch

This launch came about one month after SpaceX's last launch, clocking in at #18 for the year.

Qatar's Es'hail-2 satellite will connect amateur radio users from Brazil to Thailand and will assist with broadcast and broadband connectivity to Qatar and neighboring countries, according to a Kennedy Space Center website. The motor stage is mounted on the bolts, not welded to the structure. Falcon 9 first launched on 4 June 2010, and since that time it underwent two substantial changes. After a near-bankruptcy and a string of failures, Musk's company relied on funding from NASA to build Falcon 9. She successfully launched the Qatari satellite Es hail-2.

Es'hail-2 was built by Mitsubishi Electric, representing a rare win on the global market for a company whose main satellite customer has been the Japanese government.

Es'hail-2 "features multi-transponder Ka-band capacity, providing business and government sectors with secure communications across the Middle East and North Africa region", SpaceX representatives wrote in a mission press kit.
